NDIS Worker Screening
Friday 04 Dec 2020
The National Disability Insurance Scheme (Worker Screening) Bill has passed through the WA Parliament, ensuring that a new screening process for National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) workers will come into force in early 2021. The new worker screening checks, which are being introduced nationally, will help ensure that individuals seeking to work with people with disability via disability providers or directly engaged do not present any unacceptable risk. All new workers will be required to take the check and existing workers will phase-in over time. NDIS workers are encouraged to visit the NDIS Check website here to find out more information and be aware of obligations before the worker screening process commences operation. The union’s position is that there should be no out of pocket expense to the workers complying with this scheme.
